Bangladesh Bank Re-financing Scheme

The central bank launched the BDT 2 bn green banking refinance scheme in August 2009 to set up solar panel, bio-gas plants and industrial ETP (effluent treatment plant) under the scheme – to help reduce industrial pollution and increase power supply. The fund has been named the “solar energy, biogas and effluent treatment plant sector refinance scheme”. The new more sectors have been brought under the green banking refinance scheme to build environment-friendly economy,” Under the scheme, Bangladesh Bank is providing loans to commercial banks at interest rates from 5% to 12% for direct refinancing and credit wholesale to the entrepreneurs, who will then have access to commercial bank loans in those sectors at a maximum interest rate of a further 5%. Overall interest rates will not exceed 12%, according to the fund’s conditions.

A maximum of 100% refinance facilities will be provided to the banks against their finance in setting up those plants in rural and urban areas and effluent treatment plants for industries. Under the revised scheme, the banks can sanction up to BDT 40m loans for setting up effluent treatment plants. The limit was formerly BDT 10m.The banks will be allowed to provide loans in rural areas worth up to BDT 175,000 to install home solar panels and BDT 150,000 for setting up solar mini grids.

For biogas power plants, loans from BDT 50,000 up to BDT 2.5m can be allocated for coordinated cattle farming under the scheme. For PET bottle reprocessing plants, LED bulb manufacturing plants and environment-friendly brick kilns, banks can provide credit up to Tk50m.

The scheme was undertaken in line with the government’s plan to meet 5% of the total demand for electricity from green energy by 2015 and 10% by 2020. So far Bangladesh Bank has included 26 new products under its revolving refinance scheme for solar energy, biogas and effluent treatment plants to give loans at low interest. The banks and FIs have already disbursed BDT 826bn as green financing during the period from January 2012 to June 2014.The central bank has brought 47 green products under its refinance scheme where 23 are green energy products.They have set annual target for banks and financial institutions for direct financing which will be mandatory from January 2015.
